Reviews

"A rare and powerful synthesis of poetry and science, reason and emotion."--The New York Times
"Gracefully developed...extremely inventive.... What science fiction is supposed to do."--Newsweek
"Profound. Beautifully wrought... [Le Guin's] perceptions of such matters as geopolitics, race, socialized medicine, and the patient-shrink relationship are razor sharp and more than a little cutting."--National Review
"A very good book... A writer's writer, Ursula Le Guin brings reality itself to the proving ground."--Theodore Sturgeon
"When I read The Lathe of Heaven as a young man, my mind was boggled; now when I read it, more than twenty-five years later, it breaks my heart. Only a great work of literature can bridge - so thrillingly - that impossible span."--Michael Chabon
